We are 1:1!

WE ARE 1:1 WITH IPAD MINIS!

We have been for almost a week now and it has already revolutionized our teaching! Students at first needed to follow an intense instructional session before actually using them, but we survived some of the issues that occurred with a great learning mentality!
The students and I have already learned to create and curate a presentation on animal adaptations on the iPad using the Keynote app. We are also learning how to collaborate with one another as we use the Google drive and other apps, generating a culture of enthusiastic learning in Room 204!
 Students using the iPad to write about reading using a Google doc.
Students taking notes on the Notes app while watching a science video and presenting their animal adaptations Keynote.

So, families of Room 204, before students can bring home their iPads, they need: 1) You to sign the iPad User Agreement & 2) Students must answer the questions in a comment to Mrs. Sisul's blog after watching the digital citizenship video! If you're just a visitor to my blog, please feel free to read our principal's blog about how our district got started with the 1:1 iPad scout! I'd also love some feedback about how you use technology in your classroom!
